Exams are over, and your brain can finally take a break. From internships to traveling, to summer jobs, many of you probably have at least some plans lined up for your college summer break. How you choose to spend your summers can actually have a major impact on your resume and your future. For those of you who do not have anything lined up just yet, here are some great last minute ideas for how to spend your summer that don’t involve spending 100% of your time laying on the beach or binge watching Netflix (although we highly recommend sprinkling those activities in here and there).
Last Minute Internship
Internships are one of the best things that you can do as a college student over summer break to increase your odds of getting hired after graduation. If you haven’t applied for any internships yet, there are still plenty of opportunities out there. Don’t be afraid to ask a parent or a professor or a professional contact if they can help you get your foot in the door. Indeed.com has a list of internships you can check out here.
It’s March, so you know what that means? It’s time for MARCH MADNESS! March Madness is typically the second week of March through the first week of April. This year, the tournament is scheduled to begin on March 14th, 2017. March Madness is the time of year when the NCAA Men’s and Women’s college basketball tournaments are held to determine the national champions of college basketball.
How Does the Tournament Work?
For those who do not know how the tournament works, here is a brief overview, according to Wikipedia.
They typically start with 68 college basketball teams from the Division I level of the NCAA, to determine the national championship. 16 teams make it past the first weekend’s games. This is called the “Sweet Sixteen”. The second weekend narrows the field to the “Elite Eight” and then the “Final Four”. The final weekend focuses on the four semifinalists. The two semifinal victors move on to play in the national championship game.

Madison’s rich history of tradition is what connects us to the city we have grown to love; this is why homecoming is so important! Homecoming is the time of year when Badger Spirit is in the air, and many generations of UW students and alumni all become connected by a common denominator: the nostalgic traditions that separate Badger fans from the rest of the world.
